Today Andra Mari festivities begin in Andra Mari neighbourhood. People gather there to enjoy the txupinazo, a rocket that announces the beginning of the festival. Right after the txupinazo is shot bouncy castles for kids are opened and a musical parade starts along the streets of the neighbourhood.
Key events in this festivity are traditional Basque Dances, Popular Cross-running, tortilla competition for kids, and the famous paella competition for adults, where Trikitixa music will be played in the background.
Another big moment is the Basque honor dance called Aurresku, which is usually followed by Basque traditional dances. Likewise, every year Basque rural sport competitions and exhibitions are held.
Nights are filled with emotion too, thanks to the fire bull and different live concerts for adults and kids.
